Our church was founded in 1960 to serve northwest Atlanta’s growing population. The congregation first met for worship in the “Red Barn,” which was located at Northside Drive and West Conway Drive. Dr. Chilton “Chick” Thorington (1930-2011) led the congregation for 35 years until his retirement in 1995. Reverend Randolph “Randy” Calvo, Jr. was our second Senior Minister, serving from 1997 until April of 2007. On June 8, 2008, we welcomed our third pastor, Reverend Timothy T. Boggess to the pulpit.
